Me Made May '13!

I, Charlotte of Charlie Says Sew, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '13. I endeavour to wear one handmade garment two days a week for the duration of May 2013. And I will blog about it every week!

So. I've done it. I've signed up for Me Made May. I haven't gone crazy and promised to wear something every day because that would just be setting myself up for a massive fail! Wearing something twice a week should be ok but making it something different will be a bit trickier!

This is the kind of challenge I need to give me a kick up the backside and get making some quick wins. I jumped for the joy the other day when I finally found the Sorbetto pattern and realised it was free. I've seen loads of these since I started following blogs but I thought I'd missed the boat as I had never come across the pattern. I obviously wasn't looking very hard.

Anyhow, I immediately downloaded it and there is currently a half finished Sorbetto on my kitchen sewing table. I've also put off getting stuck into a Renfrew as I'm scared of the mighty Knit but Me Made May is the time for everyday wearable items like this. 

The other great thing about this challenge is that it will force me to post at least once a week and finally blog about the few things that I have made over the past 6 months, so watch this space for some actual posts about actual clothes!
Here's a peek os something I will definitely be busting out during MMM.
